[ARCHIVED] National Blog Highlights Boulder City

ten reasons

BOULDER CITY - writer/blogger Cindy Barks recently did quite a bit of traveling through Nevada. Her visit led to a feature called “10 Reasons To Visit Boulder City During Your Next Vegas Trip.”  It highlights many of the great spots we know and love!!

Ms. Barks writes:

"Staying in Boulder City, just a half-hour’s drive from the Las Vegas Strip, not only gives you easy proximity to the Gambling Capital of the World, but it offers a less frenetic -- yet still lively -- setting.

Also, there’s the noteworthy story that comes with the 1930s founding of Boulder City. As the town’s slogan will remind you, this is “the town that built the Hoover Dam.” It was here that the thousands of brave and tenacious Great Depression-era workers lived during the construction of one of the most significant engineering feats in United States history.

Even if your accommodations are in Las Vegas, I suggest adding a visit to Boulder City to your sightseeing itinerary. On my recent Nevada road trip, I combined a few nights in Las Vegas with a night in downtown Boulder City. It was the perfect mix of big-city glitz and small-town fun."
